    Jamie Staff, that is incredible work! Just a quick note. If you use the video button or wrap the youtube url in video tags, it will embed the video directly into your post.

    This one is the making of the sand mold and casting the mask, it was a bit touch and go, but it looks like I've go a workable piece, the fully packed box was almost 100kg of sand, so my son helped with some of the heavy lifting.

    Looking forward to seeing it when you work out the issue.

    Great tip on the LED light stripping too. Neat stuff.

    That is freaking amazing! So just for clarity, the cavity in the sand is hollow and is self supporting? Or did I miss something?

    Yep... Self supporting... Thats why it tends to be a struggle with such a large casting box, I'm realy pushng it for what my backyard operation can do, but this one supprised me so I'm happy for now... and its given me some new ideas for the next one.

    Not a lot to talk about in this one so i've done it in a bit of a timelaps style, the lasers arrived late today so I'm going to have a look into their setup next.

    Outstanding! Maybe I missed it in a previous video but how much does it weigh roughly? Can't wait to see it finished

    Sorry for the slow reply I could'nt find my scales :facepalm....... Found them !.... It's 7kg on the dot or about 15.5 pound definitely not wearable "mask" but that was not my goal, still a bit heavier then I wanted, this one has taught me a bit and the mark 2 version should be lighter

    Depends on the person as to whether it's wearable or not. For an average sized person, it'd be a bit cumbersome. For someone that is about the size of a "Predator," it wouldn't be too bad. I've had costume pieces weigh as much or more than that. But then I'm of a quite substantial stature. I'd love to see a full helmet made to accommodate the mask!

    This time around I'm working out the setup for the tri-lasers and build a base for the mask.

    I love the hidden switch. Well done. The dreds look good too. And good call on the LEDs for the laser site with the public. Even if you had signage that clearly read "laser in use" there will always be some clown that feels the need to test it. And the last thing you want is a personal injury claim filed against you over someone's stupidity.

    Again super awesome. That direct look into the lasers looks very cool, however probably why you might not want to set these up for public display.

    And I thought my mask was a challenge...I haven't seen anyone else do a bio mask with dreads directly integrated without an underlying head, I started with the airsoft mask, already rigged to be worn. Added dreads and the lasers. I have pop in eye opening covers that react to black light. I was trying for the P1 'those eyes' green look. Jury is still out, the light may have to come from within.

    I made this post knowing it would make yours look better :) as it is light years beyond my primitive example. Hats off to you mate, you have truly created a thing of beauty!

    I have that same mask. I also have the same size P1 (but not very accurate) It is shame both are only 3/4 the proper size. I want a proper 1:1 bio like the one Jamie cut up to make his.

    As for the eyes, in the first film they were yellow. In AVP-R they were more blue/green (cyan) like your UV reactive eyes are.
